Any pastry lover like me knows that France is home to some of the best. It’s no trouble finding them either, since there is practically a boulangerie on every street. When I visited Paris I was thrilled to stop by one every day, sometimes more than once a day.

We make brunch at home and we’ve even tweaked the classic mimosa. Instead of karaoke and Netflix, we cook dinner together and play Texas Hold ‘Em.
